SawStop TSDC-8R2 Dado Blade Brake Cartridge for 8 Inch Dado Blade Setup
The SawStop TSDC-8R2 Dado specific brake cartridge is the revolutionary technology behind the world famous SawStop braking system. The break cartridge includes a sealed housing containing the SawStop system electronics and an aluminium block called a break pawl. The sealed housing also includes a high speed actuator that pushes the break pawl into the teeth of the saw blade in the event accidental contact is detected.

The TSDC-8R2 is the current Standard Dado SawStop brake cartridge for 8 inch dado saw blades. The cartridge is standard for use with SawStop industrial, contractor, and professional table saws (not compatible with older CB model saws). Current SawStop models use cartridges with blue tinted plastic cases and 9 pin connectors. This SawStop brake cartridge is designed for quick replacement when activated and compatible with all woods and other non-conductive materials. If you have an older model with a clear case and a 15 pin connector, you will need a different cartridge - please call for details.

For Use with Saw Type(s): PCS and CNS, and with Industrial Cabinet Saws with model numbers beginning with "ICS"
Compatibility Notes: Not compatible with Industrial Cabinet Saws with model numbers beginning with "CB"

How the SawStop technology senses skin - Monitor and Detect:
  • The blade carries a small electrical signal.
  • When skin contacts the blade, the signal changes because the human body is conductive.
  • The change to the signal activates the safety system.
    How your SawStop brake cartridge engages - Dado Blade Brake Activation:
    • An aluminum brake springs into the spinning blade, stopping it.
    • The blade’s angular momentum drives it beneath the table, removing the risk of subsequent contact.
    • Power to the motor is shut off.

    What to do after your brake cartridge stops the blade - Dado Blade Brake Reset:
    Resetting the saw yourself is easy. Simply replace the blade and affordable brake cartridge and your saw is operational. The entire reset process takes less than five minutes
